Window Managers JWM (Joe's Window Manager) was quietly update to Version 2.1.0 at the end of September, making it the first update in over 4 years. I honestly have no idea what's changed - do we have a JVM user in here? Don't fail me guys and girls!

IIRC JWM is the default window manager on puppy, DSL and Slitaz so there's bound to be some feedback soon.

Let's hope Apple doesn't catch wind of that!

It's been a while since I've last fired up PuppyLinux from that old flash drive, but I remember JWM being a nice, functional and fast window manager.

The question posed at the end of the news post mentions JVM instead of JWM.

Yeah it's a typo. JVM is the java virtual machine.

JWM is great when running an ancient PC. Granted, I still prefer a *box.
